IMLOG (ComplexNumber,Base)

• is any complex number of the form x+iy.
• is the base value of the Log.
• IMLOG(),returns the logarithm of a complex number to the given base.

## Description

• This function shows the log value of a complex number.
• In , is any complex number.
• is the base value of a Log values.
• A complex logarithm function is an "inverse" of the complex exponential function.
• It is same as the real natural logarithm ln x is the inverse of the real exponential function.
• Thus, a logarithm of a complex number z is a complex number w such that .
• The notation for such a is or .
• If with which is in Polar form, then is one logarithm of z.
• Adding integer multiples of 2πi gives all the others.
• The complex exponential function is not injective, because for any w, since adding iθ to w has the effect of rotating counterclockwise θ radians.
• So the points ## Examples
